In a reconciliation exercise, Mudenge Boniface brings together Ribanje Denis, a Genocide perpetrator, and his victim, Kagiraneza during a meeting of perpetrators and victims designed to foster forgiveness and reconciliation. During the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, Ribanje killed members of Kagiraneza’s family. Through Mudenge’s regular teachings about forgiveness, Kagiraneza decided to forgive Ribanje. Mudenge is also a Genocide survivor. He is the founder of Inyenyeri Itazima (meaning “the star that doesn’t burn out”) which reconciles families of Genocide survivors and perpetrators.
